The ex-President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan (GEJ) has finally lends his voice of police brutality and the various killings of peaceful protesters across the country, after various images, video and reports have gone viral on the illegal killings of peaceful protesters in the country.
Jonathan took to his official social media page to discredit the killings as a said no life should be lost during a peaceful protest even if we hold different views on national issues as must people want the same progress and peace in Nigeria.
“No Nigerian blood needs to be spilled or life lost during a peaceful protest that seeks to advance our country. We may hold different views on national issues, but there is no doubt that most people desire the same thing for Nigeria, a place where we can all live out the full potential of our God-given abilities. I implore everyone to exercise restraint as we walk through these challenging times. GEJ” Jonathan tweeted.
As the peaceful protest gain more momentum in Nigeria, the IGP just introduced a new unit of the police to Nigerians, Special Weapons and Tactics unit (SWAT) to replace the recently-dissolved Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
